    I vote for MyNetDiary. It has an iPad version, and the easiest food/data entry method I've seen. But you do need to have internet when you are entering the foods. The database is kept online.

    Kind of steep for an app at $9.99 but the wife says MyNetDiary was worth every penny.

    I also like My Fitness Pal. I've been using it on my android phone but wish they had an official iPad app. So far, there is just a iPhone app so I find it easier to just go to the website in safari.

    Does it allow you to add recipes? And how is it with non-packaged food items like meat and veggies? I am trying to decide between this and MyNetDiary since MyFitnessPal doesn't have an iPad app.

    I vote for NetDiary as well, really awesome and useful!!!
    and rely you question, "how is it with non-packaged food items like meat and veggies",
    well, you have to weight the food you've taken, or there are some units can be chose, such as a cup, bowl...(but i dont think that is accurate)

    My fitness pal had all that and for some odd reason it don't you can add it. And you make something different and eat it alot you can add it and put it in the database so offer can use it. It's nice :)
    I like it. If you have any questions about the program. Just ask me and I can walk you threw :)

    I use the Livestrong app. Calorie counter, weight tracker, all the bells and whistles.

    Only $2.99. If you have an account over at livestrong.com, it'll sync up between your iPad and computer. It's also an iPhone app, but I've got a crappy Blackberry through work.

    I'm not sure if they have it for iPad or if you have to run the iPhone app at 2x but I love Lose It! I use it on my iPhone constantly and it's definitely the key to my weight loss success. I still cant believe it's free, seems like most apps this good eventually end up charging such as Livestrong (which I liked but I personally prefer Lose It).
